Episode 258 - Robotech: Resurrection, chapter 1

Episode 258: Robotech: Resurrection, chapter 1

Tolkien had his poetic references to bygone ages and elaborate world-building. Homer had his
elaborate similes that made his work so hard to translate. Hunter S. Thompson had his rambling, stream-of consciousness style of writing. And Heavymetalhooligan gives us the shouted All Caps.

From the author of Legion of the Black X-1 comes Robotech: Resurrection! And with a title like that, you know what it’s going to be all about. That’s right, block recaps of things that we all already knew. Seriously, if you were expecting something else (like, say, a resurrection) you may be a bit disappointed. But if you were expecting some new character to show up, talk smack to everyone and be rewarded for it because his name is just that goofy he’s awesome, then you’re in for a treat. So as Shade Night (no really) and Trix Kane (seriously) stand around talking about other peoples’ personal lives and some random guy tries to force the plot along and gives up trying, we all get to enjoy the awesome reiteration action that is Robotech: Resurrection.

  1. It seems a bold step for one of these fanfics to start with characters from the actual series reviewing what's happened to them in vaguely "warm and fuzzy" fashion, but soon enough it got to the vaguely described new characters starting off seemingly disconnected from anything recognizable as "Robotech" before trying to pivot back to discussing characters we actually know about. The "riffing" seemed good and solid too, with not too much in the way of tangential cultural references. You do seem to be promising one or two more chapters of this story; I can only guess at what'll happen next.

  2. So, it's a recap episode with all the grace of story vomit.
